Dear Sir, A BIG chunk of the Old Bendinat “common” has been transported away and the remaining holes are well fenced in.
This all happened in the beginning of this year with much noise and plenty of dust and dirt on the adjoining roads.
Popular walking roads and paths have been affected by the excavations and people wonder what has been done to the wilderness.
The norm around Majorca use to be that developers put up big boards to promote their projects with information about building types and time schedules. But not on this one; to find any information you have to negotiate a dead-end dirt road where the standard Calvia building site license sign is attached to the fence and telling us that there will be two and three-storey buildings, not how many, not how big.

The odd thing is that all activities on the site have been discontinued; with such a big investment having already been made you would expect an immediate follow up with construction works to minimize the capital costs.

Is this another case where work has been started in order not to lose a building license and now a five, six-acre eyesore is sitting there waiting for new money?

Wictor Forss, Bendinat.
Dear Sir,


WE returned this weekend from a great week in Majorca. Our congratulations to the town council of Cala Bona for all the work that has been done since we were there three years ago.

The area outside the Hotel Cala Bona is now for pedestrians only, with just a lane for bike riders. What a difference it has made! In fact the whole resort seems to have had a facelift, with repairs to pavements and street lights that work.Its no wonder people return year after year.

Well done to all concerned! Mr. & Mrs. D S Miles, Saffron Walden, Essex.
